Explode

Album: Bajan Style (2012)
Charted: 29
  • The Cover Drive quartet joined up with Steve Mac to pen this song. The prolific British hitmaker has credits on numerous singles for Westlife, JLS, The Wanted and One Direction as well as Cover Drive's third top 10 hit "Sparks."
  • Lead singer Amanda Reifer explained the song's meaning to The Sun: "Explode is that feeling when you are really into someone and you are trying to contain it. When you are trying to hide the feelings, eventually you burst at the seams."
  • The single version was remixed featuring additional vocals from N-Dubz rapper Dappy.
  • Reifer told Digital Spy about Dappy's contribution. "We sent him the song because the song is originally a song off our album, Bajan Style, and we thought he'd sound great on it, so we weren't in the studio when he did it. He just sent it back to us and we loved what he did with it so we decided to make it a single."
